I'm really just wondering why it is that everyone is so excited about Feathercoin. It seems like a legitimate Litecoin clone with a few variables changed, that really exists for no reason other than to exist  Undecided Any opinions on why you all are adopting it so willingly?

Honest answer: Faith.

(and perhaps greed).

If they can convince enough people to get involved, they might be able to convince someone to add it to an exchange or make and exchange, and might convince someone to give them money for it and might convince people to take it seriously. Works the same for everything else.

more or less retired.

In order to answer this you need to understand the process for some coins.

Pump-n-Dump Process:

1. Release new crypto-coin. <- done
2. Pump up the popularity.  <- you are here.
3. Dump your huge stash of coins when
    trade prices are at their highest.
4. Huh
5. Profit!!!

Hope this helps.

Free market principles which tend to escape this generation.  If you support the direction of a product, puts your money into play. If you are against it, great, no time wasted and focus the passion on what YOU support.  Ultimately, if enough people believe in the coin, a community will develop to support the goal. When I look at supporting any project I need to average how much per hour I'm giving up that I could spending time working on something else. I look at the ROI and go from there.

Personally, I like the people working on different projects supporting Feathercoin. While others spend their energy trying to talk down about this coin and that coin, others are looking to push their passion forward.  Critics are 'cute', they keep us all pushing harder.
